“This fight is something that I’ve been asking for, for about four years. I want to test myself against best, and I think [St. Pierre] certainly is the best. The home country, of course, it helps [St. Pierre] a little bit, but it’s really not that big of a deal. I’ve fought lots of people in their hometowns and home countries. It’s going to be me and Georges in there, fighting. The crowd can do whatever they want, but it doesn’t bother me that much.”

The fighter who acquired multiple world titles is yet to capture his UFC gold, as Jake Shields faces the pound-for-pound fighter in George St-Pierre.
